About the Workshop:

This workshop is for those interested in providing greater access to their unique, locally hosted digital archival collections through inclusion in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and/or Indiana Memory. The presenters will guide participants in structuring existing metadata to conform to DPLA and Indiana Memory standards and the training will be geared towards the needs of archival institutions. This session will also be tailored to the content management systems in use by attendees, so whether you use CONTENTdm, PastPerfect, or another content management system, facilitators will provide tools to help you unveil your archives to the world.

The day will include the following:

  • Introduction to DPLA and Indiana Service Hub
  • Understanding IM DPLA metadata documentation
  • Using CONTENTdm mapping recommendations
  • Using IM DPLA Metadata Mapping Tool
  • Understanding copyright and DPLA
  • Other tools available to help with metadata

For those also planning to attend the Indiana Library Federation Conference or the Indiana Memory DPLA Fest this year, this day-long workshop will be geared specifically for the archival community and offer hands-on experience.

To enable a hands-on experience, participants will be encouraged to bring sample datasets (spreadsheets, for example) and credentials for accessing their content management systems online enabling them to examine mapping options and export data for testing with mapping tools

Participants will work in homogeneous groups to discuss and come up with answers together.
